Straw Hat Players to present Christmas-themed story

A free performance of a Christmas-themed story will take place at an area church Friday night. 

The Oregon Straw Hat Players will present "Amahl and the Night Visitors" at 8 p.m. at the People's United Methodist Church. 

According to the OSHP, the story tells of the night the Three Kings, following the star to Bethlehem, stop for shelter at the home of a crippled shepherd boy named Amahl who lives with his widowed mother. Amahl offers his own simple gift to the child they seek.

There is no cost to attend the Friday show, but a free will donation is welcome, organizers said. "Amahl and the Night Visitors" will also be performed Sunday at 10:30 a.m. as part of the church's worship service.
